Savannah Rape Defense Attorney

You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty! Let Our Firm Fight for You.

In our culture, rape carries the stigma of most sex crimes and is also considered a crime of violence since rape is often accomplished through the use of threats or force. The legal penalties are severe and a prosecutor can be eager to try a high profile rape case as long as there is enough evidence to gain a guilty verdict. Despite the apparent confidence of a prosecutor regarding such a case there are generally a number of challenges the prosecution must overcome especially when the accused is represented by a respected Savannah rape defense attorney who is also a former prosecutor.

What Are the Penalties for Rape in Georgia?

The penalties for rape as defined in Code Section 16-6-1 range from 10 to 20 years and may go as high as life in prison or result in the death penalty depending upon the circumstances. The term rape can include sex with a disabled person, date rape, spousal rape, statutory rape, rape of a stranger, and rape of an unconscious, drugged or otherwise intoxicated person. If a sex partner does not give consent, is forced after refusing, or is incapable of giving consent you may be charged with rape. Accusations of rape can come about for various reasons. Morning after remorse is one of the better understood motives for a false allegation of rape.

Anyone convicted of rape will be required to register as a sex offender for life. Having a skilled rape lawyer on your side investigating the facts and examining the prosecution's case for weaknesses can make a difference in the outcome of your case. Rape allegations are extremely serious and require defense by legal counsel with experience in sex crime investigation, the use of forensic experts, and witness assessment. If you have been accused of rape you need to take immediate action to protect yourself. Talk to a criminal defense lawyer who is highly motivated to fight for you.
